Leo Howard Is The Young “Conan”

12-year-old actor Leo Howard (“G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra”) will play the young Conan in Lionsgate’s upcoming reboot of the “Conan the Barbarian” franchise reports Latino Review.

Based on Robert E. Howard’s mythical conqueror stories, the first fifteen minutes of the Marcus Nispel-directed film will focus on Howard as the young Conan before he grows into his adult incarnation (Jason Momoa).

Pre-production is underway in Bulgaria.
